Dannii graduated with an honours degree in Child and Youth Studies and has worked in a variety of settings, including nurseries, primary and secondary schools, special educational needs settings and sixth form centres. Most recently, Dannii was an award-winning Offender Learning Lecturer, in Category A and B prison education, based at HMP Birmingham, teaching convicted and remand male offenders aged 21 and over. Dannii is also a qualified teaching and quality assessor and has contributed her extensive knowledge and experience of teaching, gang culture, violent behaviour and special educational needs, to the content and development of The James Brindley Full Circle Programme.
Since joining The James Brindley Foundation in August 2020, Dannii has re-written the Full Circle Programme, linking the theme of prejudice across the piece and included an additional module covering Radicalisation. She is currently providing intervention across the West Midlands, for young people associated with knife crime and youth violence and updating lesson plans and education projects, in line with the National Curriculum and current statistics, for professionals within schools, prisons, police and probation services, as well as healthcare. In addition, Dannii is training and certificating professionals to deliver The James Brindley Full Circle Programme, through The Foundation’s accredited ‘Train the Trainer’ course, to enable more professionals across the country, to advance The Foundation’s strategy of prevention and to provide high quality interventions, to those young people who need them the most.
